    Help Me Finish This Beast of a STR Build

    Post by Jiub of Carim on Tue May 07, 2013 7:43 pm

    GRINDING DRAGON SCALES = sad

    I have a SL 135 Str build. I've grinded so many slabs and scales in hopes of making every STR weapon +15/+5. I have two slabs left and idk what weapons I have left to max. I'm going to list all the weapons I have and if anyone has any ideas for weapons I could get please lemme know. I want just weapons that have a distinct advantage in PvP in some aspect.

    Dragon Bone Fist +5
    Jagged Ghost Blade +5
    Reinforced Club +15
    Hand Axe +15
    Butcher's Knife +15
    Man Serpent Greatsword +15
    Great Lord Greatsword +5
    Greatsword +15
    Golem Axe +5
    Greataxe +15
    Large Club +15
    Great Club +15
    Demon's Great Hammer +15
    Demon's Great Machete +15
    Demon's Great Axe +15
    Obsidian Greatsword +5
    Dragon Greatsword +5
    Dragon Tooth +5
    Dragon King Greataxe +5
    Smough's Hammer +5

    Obviously I'm missing a bunch of minor weapons, such as the warpick and the blacksmith weapons. I'm also missing the Zweihander which I don't need with the Demon's Great Machete in my inventory. I've considered getting a mace, but is that my only option? Any other stand out STR weapons?

    BTW, I don't have the DEX to wield any black knight weapons.

    mace is awesome but the reinforced club is better because of the infinite stunlock, all the small hammers are good except for vamos hammer, that thing is just bad but I love the way it looks.
    dragon bone fist sucks for the weight and the damage, youre better off going with your bare fist(dragon claws).

    the golem axe is a gem, the r2's both one handed and two handed are useful as one is ranged and has super high poise break and the other can pancake people. also check out havels greatshield for is special buff which gives you infinite poise and weapon deflecting skin for a while

    The Dragon Bone Fist is good for one thing: humiliating people by last hitting them with it. I don't really care about the weapons damage or moveset. I have the Dragon Bone Fost because its extremely unique. When I play this build I switch weapons mid combat to keep my opponents guessing. Thats why I have such a wide variety of weapons that have distinct advantages or unique movesets. That's what I'm looking for. I've already decided to pick up a mace. What's next?

    Pike or Demon spear, Demon's great for getting that last sliver of health after 2 hits from a real STR weapon (at least thats how it goes down often for me at sl100)

    What!!?!!??! No Black Knight weapons? I can barely live without those!

    If anything I suggest the Great Lord Greatsword. A favorite of mine for the pure physical power and stun-lock capabilities. Stun a person once with this and they are doomed. But same goes for most Greatswords. Anything else I can think of you probably cannot wield.

    he already has man serpent greatsword and it kicks greatlord swords behind imo. more/same dmg, better moveset, less stat investment.
    ot: pickaxe and heavy crossbow are musthaves you're still missing.

    Why the pickaxe over the mace/reinforced club?

    Easy;
    Large Club
    Mace in secondary right hand (Mostly because it looks awesome and has a better moveset than the clubs)

    Try experimenting with Large Club's moveset, just because it gets used for Hornet Stabs 99% of the time doesn't mean its moveset isn't amazing.


    ...In fact, I just recently learned that there are two hits to the R2, there's a backhand swipe after the first one...

    he already has large club +15....but yeah it's my best/fav. (str) weapon

    why pickaxe over other hammer type weapons? it deals thrust type dmg->counterhit dmg and has a better horizontal hitbox. i'd argue that the thrust dmg is better than reinforced clubs bleed ailment but if you need the weight go for that instead.

    I have the Large Club on the list above. Very good STR weapon. Interesting moveset and the 1h r2 is perfect for baits like the Demon Great Axe.

    My bad.
    Anyway, I'd say get the Mace because of the high damage and it looks cool.
    Best of both worlds.
